Line Isolation and Hydrostatic Weld Test Services

 August 2016

Bevel Tech Group Inc provides Line Isolation and Hydrostatic Weld Testing using some of the
finest designed tools in the industry.

Line isolation has become a valuable service for industries because it can be performed safely and
can save considerable time and money for the Customer. The ability to isolate a line with our designed
tool can eliminate much of the pre-work associated with performing a tie-in, connection, or even
performing hot work on a line.

Using our tool can eliminate steps such as extensive decontamination of the line thus eliminating
numerous blinding points and scaffolding for those blinding points. This substantially reduces time
and costs for the Customer.

Our isolation tool has the combined ability to monitor the seals of the tool and to monitor upstream
pressure while venting to a safe location. There are two o’rings that are constantly monitored by the
pressurized medium filled zone in the annulus space between them. A gauge on the tool shows constant
static pressure, verifying the integrity of the seals and guarantees we have a positive isolation throughout
the duration of the planned work scope.

If needed, we can circulate medium around the annulus of our tool that allows the o’rings to remain intact
for high heat procedures such as PWHT, bake outs, or stress relieving.

Once welding has been completed, the same tool that was used for the isolation can be slightly repositioned
over the new weld and a localized hydrostatic weld test can be performed with just ounces of the testing
medium. Our tool can test weld neck flanges, slip on flanges, socket weld flanges, orifice flanges, branch
connections, and more.

Our Standard isolation/test tools range from 3/4 inches to 36 inches and are available at your request.
We have the tools for multi-schedule piping and can reach test pressures up to 2250 psig. If a size larger
than 36 inches is needed, contact us with your pipe size, schedule, and specific info and we can see if we
can supply you with a tool to meet your needs.
